Location: South Haven, Michigan

Price: $1,195,000

A 1980-built home with strong midcentury-modern vibes is on the market in the beach town and port city of South Haven in southwest Michigan. Located on 2.4 acres with 350 feet of shoreline frontage on Lake Michigan, the post-and-beam measures 1,152 square feet and features two bedrooms and two full baths.

Floor-to-ceilings windows and sliding glass doors are found on every side of the house, bringing sweeping views of the water inside to create a majestic but cozy indoor-outdoor living experience, which is enhanced by extensive decking.

The open living area encompasses a kitchen with breakfast bar and what appears to be original orange-and-red themed cabinets, dining, and, the best part, a conversation pit of sorts with built-in sofa anchored by a brick fireplace. Clerestory windows compliment the walls of glass on either side.

Flanking this main space are the two bedrooms, each with their own baths (the master even boasts a fireplace), as well as ample lake-framing windows. Surrounded by woods, the property, located at 76800 14th Avenue, can be your private getaway for $1.195 million.
